The Way America Does New Year's Eve

Laurence Brown enlightens us about the differences between new year celebrations in the UK and the US. My late mother-in-law was a big believer in first footing, although she never knew that term. My husband would call her very early on New Year's Day so she wouldn't have to worry about being called by a woman first in the new year. Then he'd go back to sleep. I am grateful to the British for giving us "Auld Lang Syne," though.
